This book is a useful companion for radiographers and medical students involved in radiography of paediatrics. Its simple format covers a wide range of topics and includes mechanisms of injury and pathology. The only drawback with this text is that its small size and wide range of topics mean that the reader may be left feeling that they are only scraping the surface and would therefore wish to refer to more detailed texts. All in all a useful, if brief, guide to paediatric trauma and would be useful on the shelf in any department that deals with children.
